Elementary students participate in field trips that pair with their units of study. Examples of field trips are, "The Little Red School House", Loggerhead Marine Life Center, Rich's Ice Cream, Publix, agricultural farms, etc. These trips, taken during the school day are designed to enrich student knowledge through experience.
Overnight school trips are a great way to go to different places, such as historical areas or a large city. In upper elementary, our students have the opportunity to participate in an overnight trip to St. Augustine (4th Grade) and Washington, D.C. (5th Grade).
4th Grade: The King’s Academy 4th grade students travel with American Christian Tours to the oldest city in America for more than 20 years. The city of St. Augustine is a wealth of Florida history, as well as an insightful view into past cultural traditions. As the students visit the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Castillo de San Marcos, and infamous St. George Street, they experience for themselves all they have learned in the classroom. Parent chaperones and students will warmly recall this memorable trip for years to come. This trip is truly a unique experience with hands-on interaction, exceptional cultural exposure, and a walk-through history from long ago.
5th Grade: The King’s Academy fifth grade students have an amazing opportunity to embark on a trip to our nation’s capital. This trip to Washington, DC, affords the students a chance to witness history come alive right before their eyes. TKA has been fortunate to partner with American Christian Tours year after year to guide our students and parent chaperones to renowned historic destinations like Mount Vernon, Ford’s Theatre, and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. The life-changing experience will inspire your student with a firsthand encounter with our nation’s Christian heritage founded by Godly men and women who shared a Christian worldview.
